En Déshabillé (also called, Italian Girl) - MARY CASSATT
Drypoint, circa 1889, Breeskin 95, edition unknown. 7 1/4 x 5 1/2 in. Signed and numbered (No. 1) in pencil. This is a superb impression, rich with burr. The paper is a textured, white laid without a watermark. The margins are full and the condition is quite good apart from a little toning in the top part of the sheet and a couple of faint handling creases showing in the background. This lovely work is from the collection of Robert Hartshorne, New York, (Lugt 2215b.) His collector's stamp is on the verso in two places, one showing slightly though on the bevel below the image and above Cassatt's signature. This subject was one of more than sixty prints included in the important retrospective of her work held at Durand-Ruel in Paris, 1893.
